So true buddy. London will have one of the best skylines in Europe (already is in my top 3).

Has anyone noticed how Columbus seems to appear in the 'futuristic' Lotto advert (just after Grandad shows his sparkling teeth!). Anyway looks like Columbus.

Now thats a cracking night time shot.

When the BT tower reopens to the public and give it a few more years for both the City & CW cluster to grow and that view is going to be the place to be. It will look like one huge cluster.

I'd say more if rather then when. No formal announcement has been made if they are going to reopen the tower. Everything you may have read in the press is meer speculation.

Amazing, that has to be the best image I've seen of the two clusters together.

I jusst wish St Paul's was lit up, or had more light around it.

Beautiful shot.

Looking at that, no one can argue that London doesn't have a skyline and no one can deny that it has one of the best skylines in Europe.

Fantastic shot, I thought it was Lower Manhattan when I first saw it! Do you have a HQ version of this anywhere?!

Agreed, a HQ version would be much appreciated if you have one nauticat.

Even if this is a cropped area from the original

Geat pictures.

Judging from recent photos Willis' Tower has actually had much more effect on the City skyline than I had thought.

I always find it surprising how many tall buildings there are in CW, when from some angles it still looks like three towers.

love that pic Medo.

Which other cities can claim to have a castle in their CBD and an emerging world class skyline

Can't really offer much more of a HQ as I was using only a basic camera but it was indeed cropped. Heres the full version in the highest resolution
